Celebrating the brilliance of nurses


Celebrating the brilliance of nurses


An inspiring national awards programme, Cavell Star Awards are given to nurses, midwives, nursing associates and healthcare assistants who shine bright and show exceptional care to one of three groups of people:

Their colleagues.

They’re the loyal team mate who cares when you’re having a tough day, the person that puts their arm around the whole team.

Their patients.

The trusty colleague who ensures their patients are always safe, comfortable and informed.

Patients’ families.

They go the extra mile to make certain patients’ families also feel part of the care journey.

Who will you nominate?

You know that nurse, midwife, nursing associate or HCA, so make sure they get rewarded for their sparkling qualities. Tell us why your colleague is a superstar and how they go above and beyond their usual duties.

Cavell Star Award nominations are temporarily closed

Unfortunately due to recent unprecedented numbers of Cavell Star Awards nominations being submitted, the team at Cavell has taken the difficult decision to temporarily suspend nominations.

The nomination form on this website will remain unavailable temporarily, allowing for the backlog of nominations to be processed. It will open again on 11th July 2022.

If you have submitted a Cavell Star Award nomination on or before 23rd May 2022, your nomination will be reviewed over the next few weeks. If you don’t hear from a team member at Cavell Nurses’ Trust then your nomination has not been successful this time.

We apologise for any disappointment. The team at Cavell is very small and we are working hard to review all nominations as quickly as we can. Thank you for your understanding.
